Nominations for the 2018 CIPEC Leadership Awards are open until March 16th. The prestigious CIPEC Leadership Awards recognize outstanding leadership in industrial energy efficiency by showcasing and sharing the best practices of innovative companies.

This year’s CIPEC Leadership Awards ceremony will take place at ENERGY SUMMIT 2018 – Maximize Profitability through Energy Performance in Vaughan, Ontario on May 30, 2018.

All CIPEC leaders are eligible to be nominated for projects or initiatives completed between March 2, 2016 and March 2, 2018. Leaders can nominate themselves, another member of their industry or future leaders for the awards.

Organizations can be recognized under the categories of Corporate Stewardship, Process and Technology Improvements, Energy Performance Management, Employee Awareness and Training, or an Integrated Energy Efficiency Strategy.

Companies that have actively promoted energy efficiency at the corporate level could be eligible for the Corporate Stewardship Award for initiatives that include the creation and engagement of an energy management team or the development of a corporate energy management plan or policy.

The Process and Technology Improvements Award recognizes organizations that implement changes to equipment and procedures, which reduce the energy intensity of an industrial process. Companies that have enhanced the monitoring, measuring, and reporting of their energy consumption could be eligible for the Energy Performance Management award.

Initiatives that advance employee energy efficiency awareness and understanding, and promote best practices through knowledge exchange are also recognized under the Employee Awareness and Training award while companies implementing an array of energy efficiency initiatives via an integrated strategy can be nominated for an Integrated Energy Efficiency Strategy award.

CIPEC also offers a Future Leaders award to individual energy-related practitioners who have made significant contributions to industrial energy efficiency. To be eligible, nominees must either be enrolled in an academic institution or have recently graduated, and have completed a relevant project or research.

Don’t delay! Contact for more information and request your nomination form today. The nomination deadline is March 16th, 2018.
